NEW YORK, NY, April 15, 2016 - Days after a season two premiere that solidified "Fear the Walking Dead" as the #2 show on cable (behind only "The Walking Dead") and the #7 show in all of television - cable and broadcast - among adults 18-49 this television season, AMC announced that it has renewed the series set at the onset of the zombie apocalypse for a third season of 16 episodes, airing in 2017. The network also announced that it had renewed the live aftershow "Talking Dead: Fear," hosted by Chris Hardwick, for another season, following all new episodes of "Fear."

In Nielsen live+3 ratings, Sunday's "Fear the Walking Dead" season two premiere delivered 8.8 million viewers, including 5.7 million adults 25-54 and 5.3 million adults 18-49.

"What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in 'Fear The Walking Dead' is to be applauded. Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world - it's fresh, eerie and compelling and we're all in for the ride," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "As Victor Strand observed, 'The only way to survive a mad world is to embrace the madness.' We thank the millions of fans for embracing this mad world and look forward to sailing far into the future."
